Lazio and Verona are known to be rivals with Pescara. Pescara's regional rivals are Chieti, Virtus Lanciano and L'Aquila; however, they haven't faced either team since 2002 due to financial troubles. Pescara also shares notable rivalries with regional neighbors, namely the Marche clubs such as Ancona, Ascoli and Sambenedettese.

Nonetheless, after returning to Serie B after a year, Pescara would enjoy a revival after the appointment of Giovanni Galeone as coach in 1986. His philosophy of attacking football saw the Biancazzurri promoted to Serie A as champions in 1987, where they lasted two years with players such as Júnior and Blaž Slišković among the club's star players. Galeone would return during the 1990–91 season and oversaw another promotion the following year.
